Have You Seen... Fake Meter-Reading Thieves, Northeast Bronx (Update)
Remember last fall when two guys were going around the Northeast Bronx, pretending to be water meter readers, and preying on old Italian ladies by having one of them chat them up in Italian while the other stole from their homes? Cops say they kept at it through October, and pulled another such job on January 12. But now they have names and photos of the suspects: John George (left), 29, 5'8", 160 pounds, and Steve Demetro (right), 40-50, 5'4", 230 pounds. If you have information as to these men or these incidents, NYPD asks you to contact 1-800-577-TIPS(8477), www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
